A 74-year-old male with repetitive cardiac failure due to ischemic heart disease successfully underwent endoventricular patch plasty by Dor's procedure. After surgery, the left ventricular volume was reduced with the improvement in morphological features. The left ventricular ejection fraction increased from 28% to 43%. Cardiac rhythms returned from atrial fibrillation to sinus rhythm. This procedure is a treatment of choice for ischemic end-stage cardiac failure and may become an alternative or a bridge to heart transplantation.doi:10.2974/kmj.49.33 fatcat:3ainruk3k5bmxdte6g3xlci3si
